   Alex and Rene gave good advice.

But also, please do NOT use 2.0.5. You will give yourself a big headache 
if you do.

2.1.3 is a lot better.

Or you could use 2.5. In my personal opinion 2.5 is not production-ready 
yet, but if you're still doing development, you could use 2.5 and by the 
time you're ready to go live it'll be more mature, and more 3rd-party 
products will work with it.

   If you use 2.0.5 you will experience a painful migration to 2.1.
If you use 2.1.3, the migration to 2.5 is not bad at all.
